David Hurwitz, March 2002

"Symphonies Nos. 3, 6, and 7 rank high in a crowded field, while Nos. 4 and 5 command respect if not quite achieving the same quality. The Iceland Symphony Orchestra's characterful winds and rhythmically precise strings realize the chamber music textures of the last symphonies particularly well, especially No. 6, which despite slowish tempos makes a very powerful impression...The low level recordings from Iceland need a good volume boost to sound their best; but with that adjustment they exhibit fine body, detail, and focus. In sum, this budget box has a lot going for it and Sibelius collectors should hear it for the insights Sakari brings particularly to the late works..."

Peter Dobrin
The Philadelphia Inquirer, February 2002

"The Iceland Symphony Orchestra plays at a very high level, and its (now) former chief conductor has a point of view."
